Better care. Better decision-making. Better use of resources. 

Demonstration Projects

RACP encourages its Advanced Trainees and Fellows to develop and conduct research projects on specific recommendations as part of specialty training. Outcomes from these projects can be:
   •   Presented at conferences or published in journals
   •   Adapted across health services and specialties
   •   Used as ongoing references or resources
   •   A career development opportunity

RACP is currently undertaking two Advanced Trainee Demonstration Projects on the Australian & New Zealand Society of Geriatric Medicine’s Evolve Top 5 List items, which focus on:
   •   high-risk medications
   •   polypharmacy 

Demonstration Project Resources

​Resources relating to the Evolve Demonstration Projects will be available shortly.
